Help support your MeetupChip in
Please read through this section before requesting membership:
*Joining 'Valrico Poker Players' group is FREE!! - however, there is a $1.00 per meetup charge per member at almost every game. Though this is NOT a charge for 'playing the game' or a profit for hosts - meetup is a paid site and this charge helps offset some of the costs associated with having a meetup group on the meetup site.
We play a local monthly" texas holdem tourney style' game every month in a private residence. Our group and game details are on our meetup site under 'files' section. Our games are are usually played on either a Friday or Saturday night or occasionally Sunday late afternoons (during non football season) The exact start times vary & are listed on the actual meetup calendar... Our blind structures are set so games end in 3-3.5 hours, normally.
We play for chips. No cash games. Buy ins are 15-25$ depending on game, with (optional) $5 one time add-on). NO REBUYS in our group. We have all skill levels.
The membership requirements for all members are:
oyou must have a profile pic on meetup with your actual face showing... This is for safety reasons. ... We prefer you're Known and referred by someone in the group!! (sorry, private group...) If we do not know you but you want to join, you need to please contact an organizer 'before' requesting membership so we can speak with you. This is also for safety reasons as well as avoiding meetup/internet 'trolls' that join groups with no intentions of participating, Since these are held in a members home, we will err on the side of caution.
o Attending poker games (new members must attend their first game within the first month of joining so we can meet you - no exceptions....) this maintains the integrity of the membership list and allows us to avoid trolls.
o Accurately rsvping to games. No shows ( which is rsvping yes but not showing to the game) or those that repeatedly cancel last minute - are removed from the group. We do chip counts and set tables ahead of time. No shows and/or last minute cancels are inconvenient and impolite... and are not acceptable in our group.
o Respect other members and the homes where games are held. Anyone acting hostile towards other members or being a 'sore loser and having an adult tantrum, will be banned from the group. *we are a friendly poker group - we do not play for big money*. If its not fun, don't play.
Any other questions, please feel free to ask.
